    Wow, both are beautiful bikes, Grant. The old one is amazing and I love the King. If I was buying a new carbon bike it would likely be a King 3.

    I took this bike in trade for a new surfboard a few years ago. By far, I got the better end of the stick. It had been ridden a grand total of about 75 miles then stored for 15 years in a container. I replaced the saddle, the hoods, and the tires and that was it. Unfortunately, after riding it for awhile, it was just a little too big.

    That's mine now, 'cept refinished in light blue. See above. I also took it back a year or two in livery. Sacrilegious, I know!

    Built from parts scavenged from my cyclocross bike and other random parts I had laying around, this is what I'm back to riding after selling my team Madone from last season. From what I remember it rode well, despite being a size too big for me, and the loose rivet on one of the downtube cable stops didn't really affect the shifting at all.

    I'd like to take it out tomorrow morning, but it's looking like the weather is warming up enough to start melting the snow that's on the ground, which is going to make for one big mess over the next few days.

    Unexpected bonus (though one I've gotten to experience before...) is being able to answer "Yes!" when asked if I ride SRAM, Shimano, or Campagnolo.

    hey i have one of those. bought my 'big red tomato' in 01. 60cm ferrari red with chorus/record. for some reason mine came from the factory with a full carbon 1" fork. kind of think i should keep it even though i want to replace it. i always hear people regret selling their old classics and i know i would be that guy. don't have any pics and I'm to lazy to go take some

    King XL Formula. Old carbon.. Great ride like all DeRosas. New to the build is a pair of 28mm Schwalbe Ultremo Rs. I dig them. Normally run Veloflex Paves or whatever they call them now with Zondas.. More aero - not quite as comfortable.. Barely have clearance on the rear with the 28s - plenty on the front. I like the balance of silver on this build - down to the spokes with this older Nucleon wheelset. I keep going back to these Era saddles. I did a series of "tests" trying to ride other saddles - some limited by "vertical height from rails to surface of saddle by integrated seatmast...

    ... other details - Tiso RD, Older 170mm Centaur Alloy cranks with the nicer chainrings, though no anti-friction treatment. Deda Shallow drop bars in silver with the silver Zero 100 110mm stem. - Matt

    VERY NICE...Nice timeless but modern look to this bike...nicely set up...DeRosas ride so beautifully. The integrated seatpost arrangement is so clean..an example for others to follow and learn from...

    2001 Neo Primato, Genius tubing, Shramano componentry and crabon fork. I might add gold bar tape when the white wears out just to make the haters hate it even more!

    I'm not sure why but out of the big 3, I'm partial towards De Rosa.

    I'm a moron. Which are the big three - Colnago, Pinarello, De Rosa? I've always wanted one of each.

    The Big Three are Harvard, Princeton and Yale

    The Little Three are Sachs, Zank and Dazza.

    The De Rosa came from Conrad's in 1983. Had M Nobilette use it as a blueprint so I could ride with a brake. One of the great rides.
